Chipotle peppers in adobo

Multiple Choice

Without a few cans of chipotle chiles in adobo, my pantry would be much less than perfect. Chipotles have the same thing in common with all but one of the following peppers. Which one is the different one?

1. Ancho
2. Guajillo
3. Morita
4. Habañero

The habanero pepper is the only pepper on the list that is a fresh pepper, not smoked or dried. I do use the chipotle in adobo when I want a nice rich tasting heat, which is actually often in my family. Love it. Great question.

I confess I have no clue on this one. I never buy chipotles in adobo but I do use the ground chipotle from Penzeys quite a bit!

I would guess habanero. The rest are dried/smoked peppers. I've been enjoying ancho and guajillo chiles so much in homemade enchilada sauce.

Oh, dear I thought I knew this one. I am going to with the habanero as well for not being smoked. I haven't seen those smoked. .... yet.

Not knowing chiles that well, I would guess habanero because for some reason I think it is green and therefore fresh?

This I actually know. Lots of chilies in Southern Arizona! Only the habanero is sold fresh.

Habs, fresh. I ate a very small sliver one time and salivated for 15 minutes. Too zippy for me.

Hmmm... :-)

Voting for habanero...scary to think about a smoked habanero.

The habanero is different it is a fresh pepper all the rest are dried with a name different from the fresh pepper root. Chipotles are smoke dried Jalapenos. The Guajillo are dried Mirasol peppers. Anchos are dried Poblano chilis.
